    Connie and Fay

    Ah, Connie and Fay, my dream sibset. They are both absolutely adorable, and sound so singsong when you say them out loud. They look good side by side on paper, too. But they're both so short, and I have no interest in Fiona or Felicity, Consuela, Conscience or Constance. I also have no middle names for either in their short form.

    My style of name is quite outlandish at times, and I like a good, solid unisex name now and again (Avery, Harper, Haley). I also LOVE Irish/Celtic/Gaelic names, with their original spellings. I like spunky, fun nicknames with more serious (but still fun) full names that they can be used for more serious affairs.

    I'd really appreciate some help to preserve my perfect sibset! Full names for either, and middles as well. Thank you!

    This is crazy oh my gosh - when I was younger (7-ish) my little sister had friends who were twins called Connie and Fay. They were about 3 at the time and had the cutest brown curly hair.

    Anyway, I absolutely think both are valid without fuller names.

    Fay especially, since it's the Olde English word for fairy. For some reason it boils my blood when people try and give perfectly nice stand alone names random fuller versions with nothing to do with the original (ie: Olivia nn Ivy? Penelope nn Poppy? WHY?) so yes, Fay is definitely okay on it's own!
    Connie is originally short for Constance, but is fine without. It's ranked #162 in the UK (#89 in NI alone).

    I used to know a Faylea, which is something, and Faye is also a more rounded out spelling. I've got nothing for Connie

    I think Faye/Fay stands well on its own whereas Connie sounds like a nickname. That said, names that have traditionally been nicknames seem to be more accepted as full names nowadays so it wouldn't be incredibly out there to use as is. You'll just get that question about what Connie is short for -- I can think of a lot worse! Here's some that could work as well.

    Cornelia
    Coryn
    Corrine / Corinna / Coralie
    Coleen

    For Fay there is

    Phaedra
    Felicia
    Farrah

    Connie & Fay is incredibly cute just as it is though and worth going for if you really love it.

    I love Phaedra as a full name for Fay, and I'd also use Theophania (pn: Thee-oh-FAY-nee-a) as a full name for Fay, but that's probably a bit too out there.
